Wheelchairs are equipment designed to assist in the movement of people who have some kind of injury or disease that prevents their movement or that hinders it. For some people it is a technical help that they need all the time to be able to function independently in their daily activities, while for others, it is a tool that they only need for a short time. Whatever the reason, wheelchairs should be user-friendly and tailored to your needs. Wheelchairs were invented many years ago, it is believed that the first was created to help King Philip II of Spain to mobilize, around the year 1595. However, the first patent as such was registered in 1869, with that invention many models have emerged, for example electrical, transport, for the interior or to rise, all with a common purpose, to allow the independence of users with mobility problems or reduced mobility.

Types of Wheelchairs for the Medical Sector

Electric Wheelchair

The electric wheelchair is in principle advisable, for those people who can not propulse themselves. However, they are increasingly chosen for their well-being and comfort, as well as the freedom of movement they offer. These have a motor and a battery that provides energy so that the user or the passenger can carry it without pushing it. Other actions contain a control on the back, or double control so that both the user or the passenger can carry the chair. In some special cases, you can put the knob to the chin. This is especially necessary in cases of very high and very severe quadriplegia, which only allow its use with the head. Some of the most common reasons why the use of an electric wheelchair is needed are due to high spinal injuries, neuromuscular and/or degenerative diseases that prevent movement, older people who lack strength, or people with respiratory or heart disease for whom efforts are not advised.

Children Wheelchair

There is a fairly common belief that if a child uses a wheelchair, especially if the wheelchair has an engine, the child will not want to make the slightest effort to give mobility to the rest of the body, because the comfort of moving in a chair will not make him or her struggle. But almost all children, whether disabled or not, want to walk as long as possible, because they like to explore their environment, even if it’s with help, it gives them more possibilities for exploration. Some children will not be able to walk, and doing their daily activities will be a limitation, so by using a wheelchair will help them feel useful, which is why parents have the responsibility to provide them with a wheelchair and a proper sitting system so that they can develop their independence and maximize their abilities.
